The Waiting IS the Hardest Part

These days, all I can think about is the glorious day that will be the 22nd of November. It is exactly one month away and yes two paydays away (not including today) and I will have completed the first phase of my journey.

There are many things that I could and should be doing but I just can’t seem to do them. I go to work, I go home, relax and above all, try to spend as little as possible. I keep thinking and focussing on making sure that I don’t screw up and make me miss that deadline. 

I know that I shouldn’t dwell on it, but this day has been five long years in coming, so forgive me if in this last stretch that I take great joy in finally reaching it. The anticipation is almost killing me. I can’t really put into words how eager I am to sprint down the last stretch and just finish this.  

I know that before long, the day will finally arrive . . . after that comes “Funtime!” Funtime is the time of saving, and having control of my paycheque again, at least a part of it. It will be an adjustment to have control over a portion of my income that is not spoken for, a first in many years, let me tell you. 

On the writing front, I haven’t written anything on the book in weeks, and that is frustrating.  I am half way through a chapter with an idea on how to finish it. I just can’t seem to get down to it. I keep telling myself to get to it, but each morning I just fritter away the time. 

Perhaps tomorrow will be the day when I can put things aside and get back to writing. Until then, here is your sunrise shot.
